Would the AEM factory stuff for the F4 1000 work on the newer bikes? The price comes out to about the same as the BDS kit if ordering from Design Corse.

Unfortunately my 2017 B3 800 has the "older" one and if I'm going to spend the money to buy CNC parts, I may as well use the better version.

EDIT: Probably not going to work..was checking part numbers of the F4 and B3 and they dont match. I'll just order the BDS kit when it's time to upgrade.

Nice parts...
Got the bike back from the dealer today where the BDS sprocket carrier was mounted at the same time as a new chain kit (was missing one tool to be able to make it myself). The mount was direct replacement of the OEM sprocket carrier and top hat spacer (had one as well from BDS). No change in the stack length.

Here is the result:


While riding, I noticed it is smoother with the new chain kit and the BDS sprocket carrier (was in sport mode while usually riding in touring mode)…

Let's see what it gives on the long run, now...

Very similar if not the same exact unit on my f3 800. Not sure it made it any difference to performance or reliability, but based on your mileage your in a different category for sure.
They are pretty for sure!

Finally got round to fitting mine this weekend, big shout out to Daniel for all his help altering the carrier to fit my aftermarket sprockets.

Will post a performance review shortly after my next track outing

Thumbs up ?

Folks;
At least replace your 2nd Gen cush drive with a 1st Gen quick change style cush drive
On the right 2nd Gen axle with 1st Gen cush drive
On the left 1st Gen axle with 2nd Gen cush drive
In other words they fit
My Brutale 910R has 38,000mi on it, original chain and sprockets
The cush drive hasn't been touched
Mitch Hub #6 has 34,000mi on it and hasn't been touched

On occasion I clean.the chain and sprockets with paint thinner and wipe the chain down with WD-40
If I feel real froggy I clean inside of the front sprocket cover

Worth every penny, amazing transformation on/off throttle very smooth.

I've got a BDS unit coming for the 990R. The slop in the cush is bad at 5500 miles. Yes I know I could replace the rubbers. I have the money and like the look of the BDS and the permanence of the solution. Plus looks WAAAAY better than the OEM 1st gen stuff, and if I am going to swap - I want the BLING!

Holy crap, what a difference! The Gen 2 cush hub is a POS in feel in comparison to the BDS. I concur, get a Gen 1 OEM or pony up for the BDS.


OEM slop with 5500 miles on the bike: https://youtu.be/FZQESqem0fM

"Test rode" to work this morning and the result is amazing. No clunky low speed, no clunky clutch let out, no clunky uptake on partial throttle low speed turns. Solid connection feel to the rear wheel via the throttle. Worth the $$ on multiple facets.

Working with HRH Corse was easy. Hard part for me was that they take payment through wire transfer, which I guess is more common in Europe. My banks are all in PA, where I lived for 12 years before moving to CA. I finally settled on using and online transfer service, as my banks wouldn't allow online wire transfers. I used TransferWise for the payment. Shipping from BDS was FAST and I got my kit in essentially 4 business days from Germany!

Installation is easy.

As you can see I ordered the BDS "tophat" spacer as well to go with the cush drive. My OEM one was in great shape, but this one is supposed to be better stronger material.

The sprocket nuts were a bit scary, as getting to 25N-m they felt like they were getting mushy threads, but they aren't going anywhere. The 10mm nuts for the cush drive felt solid when torqued to 45 N-m per instructions.

There is ZERO slop now. It was scary how much slop there was on the OEM design after only 4000 miles.
